Here is the knitting kit version of a sock model I am happy to share with you to greet the year that is ending and celebrate the beginning of the new one. Auld Lang Syne is a popular song often heard on New Year's Eve.
This is a song from Scotland passed down from generation to generation and transcribed in 1788 by Robert Burns.
